Stitches of Light and More

Crochet, plastic canvas, wreaths and more

Plastic Canvas Home is Where the Air Force Sends Us Sign- Work in Progress Wednesday

As many of you know, I bounce back and forth between plastic canvas, wreaths, crocheting and loom knitting.  Right now I’m between crocheting and plastic canvas.  The little crochet project I’ve been working on works up quickly, so it’s really not a work in progress, except I want to make more of them.  I’ll post them on another day 🙂  So here is my plastic canvas project I’m currently working on.  I started this in the beginning part of this week.  It could have been done by now, but I can’t seem to decide on a border that I like yet, be it colors or design (Any suggestions?!)


This one is obviously for the Air Force.  I was wanting to do Army one first (after all, my hubby IS in the Army LoL), but my teenage son was using those colors to try to loom knit a hat.  I plan on doing all the branches, and a general military one.


What are you working on this week?  Share a link, I would love to visit and see!

Navy Coasters- Made by You Monday

With all the bustle of the holidays beginning, plus homeschooling my younger son, it gets challenging to find time to craft some days. I seem Togo in spurts where I’ll get a bunch done and then I’ll have weeks where I just can’t seem to get anything done.

Another big frustration is that while I LOVE doing the plastic canvas, it takes me several days to complete a coaster set or even a checkbook cover. If I work hard I can do them in 2-3 days.

But I did manage to complete this navy coaster set that I posted on my work in progress post before. Just in time for the upcoming craft fair. Big navy area there :).


I wish I could have had more than one set ready by then but it just won’t happen. My husband suggesting having it out as a sample and taking orders for them, but I’m not sure how people would feel about that. Have any of you ever done something like that before? If so, how did it work out for you?

Finished Object Friday- Army Checkbook Cover


I managed to finish my checkbook cover that I had posted a picture of in my Work in Progress post on Wednesday. I think it turned out pretty cute! It’s my own patter that I came up with. I love the cammo yarn by Red Heart! I plan to do covers with the other military branches soon. Navy will be next as I am getting ready to do a craft fair down near the naval academy in a few weeks.
